giffords. wayne lapierre is all for having a police officer protect 9-year-old girls in school, but anywhere else a 9-year-old goes in america, a movie theater, a shopping mall, she is on her own. and we know now, she is on her own against the best equipped mass murderers in the history of the human race. that is right, we're number one, usa, usa, we're number one. no country in the world has better equipped mass murderers than the united states of america. and that is thanks to the lifetime work of wayne lapierre. every day since 1977, wayne lapierre has been making sure that mad men in america can fire any gun they want, and any bullet they want. at any children they want, at any teachers, at police officers, at the president. the solution wayne lapierre suggested today to stop school shootings has already been tried in many places across america, including columbine high school, where 13 years ago 12 students and one teacher were shot dead. columbine had an armed sheriff's deputy at the school every day and every day prior to that. but when the moment came, the deputy could do so

of gab reel giffords, limit magazines is a good idea. that was not enacted. who fights for that? >> one of the fundamental issues, there are a lot of folks in this country, democrats and republican who's believe very strongly that there is an individual right to bear arms. when you're at limits on magazines, the last time we had a limit on magazine capacity was about ten rounds. the most popular firearm in the country, the glock handgun has about 17 rounds in the chamber. and i think a lot of people are questioning whether or not limiting magazine capacity is appropriate when this handgun that is used by many people for self-defense and other legitimate purposes would be so heavily impacted by it. i understand the desire to limit magazine capacity but i think it will be a tough thing. wait a second. i use my firearm for legitimate purposes and i think it is perfectly appropriate to have 17 rounds in my chamber. >> james? >> yeah. i have no idea why he needs 17 rounds in your chamber. have you got a handgun? i've got six. what are you going to do with 17? that's an argument they

columbine, nor virginia tech, nor the gaby giffords shooting that took six lives in tuscan had much effect on the gun debate if this country. but there is nothing like the slaughter of 20 first graders to help people focus on an issue. many on both sides of the second amendment debate wonder tonight if this one is big enough to actually change the big business of guns in this country long-term. darren rovell found some interesting early indications. >> reporter: at a gun store in san gabriel, california, just outside of los angeles, business was brisk today. customers buying guns and ammunition, making sure they can get what they want now. the u.s. firearms industry is breaking all kinds of sales records. now more than a $30 billion business with so many different people buying guns, that it's impossible to profile the typical gun owner. >> i need your signature. >> reporter: people like this stay-at-home mom. >> this is the first gun i have ever purchased. i never thought i would be purchasing one, but my husband does have one. >> reporter: edgar hernandez was just out window shopp
